Card's first short story collection, this book features a retrospectively-hilarious and extremely patronizing introduction by Ben Bova giving this "bright new writer" fatherly advice. (I love reading 'historical documents' like that...
Also includes the original short story that 'Ender's Game,' was based on, several other quite excellent short stories, and an afterword where Card briefly discusses his inspiration for each piece.
Quite good, overall - not at all 'juvenilia.' ( )

This is a collection of Orson Scott Card's short stories. It is very interesting as many of these are early works. You can really see his style and creativity developing. ( )
